Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Sure, the Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural is loaded with an abundance of farm-fresh produce and flowers, ready-to-eat foods, traditional Mexican handcrafts, fashions, accessories, body products and unique gifts, but did you know that we also have some good-for-you services? If your body is aching for an "ahh" kind of chiropractic treatment, then check out the talent and expertise of American-trained, board-certified Dr. Erik Fulfer.
Meet Erik Fulfer, DC
Dr. Fulfer is the proud owner and practitioner of Bahia Chiropractic & American Chiropractic. He started his professional journey by following in the footsteps of his grandfather, a World War II veteran-turned-chiropractor.
Fulfer enlisted in the U.S. Military. He served four years with the 82nd Airborne Division and the 508th Airborne Battalion. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army in 1994. Then, like his grandfather who attended chiropractic school in the 1950s, Fulfer went on to complete his science-based undergraduate studies in order to attend the largest chiropractic institution in the country at the time. Fulfer graduated from Life University School of Chiropractic in March 2000. He successfully passed all four parts of the National Board of Chiropractic Exams, as well as the physical therapist exams.
In the following nine years, Dr. Fulfer applied every bit of his training to helping patients reclaim health and vitality with his Atlanta-based practice, serving as Associate DC, Clinic Director and owner.
Big Dreams in Mexico
Same Day, On-Site Chiropractic Care
In 2011, Dr. Fulfer joined over 80 vendors at the Vallarta's favorite weekend attraction: the OTFM-TC. His mission? To share his passion for good health and over 16 years of experience with international visitors. He set up a chiropractic table under a shaded tent and happily treated market goers to highly effective on-site treatments.
Today, Dr. Fulfer continues to help thousands enjoy their stay in sunny Mexico without pain and discomfort. And now you, too! Experience what it means to be free from troublesome symptoms. Stop by Dr. Fulfer's tent in Lazaro Cárdenas Park this Saturday for a same-day appointment.
